Unquestionably, a great entertainer, from the time when singers & variety acts were the mainstay of evening TV in the UK…and people could take a joke with good heart.

I will always remember this, as an extension of the running gags with Morecambe & Wise.

Very, very funny - given the rarity of his performances with them, I would guess a Christmas show
